I just got this poster from my friends at Naturally Superior Adventures. As some of you may recall, I was one of the guest speakers at it in the great summer of 2006.
They just sent this
email and I discovered my little face (and boat) on it! Click on the poster to see my smug little face. :)
They also sent along a little letter about
this year's event. If you are looking for a great Greenland
paddling symposium, you need to check it out.
In just over a month's
time we at Naturally Superior Adventures will host our second annual
Greenland-style Paddling Symposium here on Lake Superior at the mouth of the Michipicoten
Dates: Friday, August 24-Sunday, August 26. Price: $275 (all inclusive). Save
$50 if you bring your own boat.
We hope you will attend.
In this all-levels
paddling festival you'll learn to paddle the old school way with a
skinny-bladed Greenland-style paddle. No experience is necessary. We provide
handcrafted white pine Greenland
paddles to use for the weekend. It's Canada's
only Greenland-style paddling festival.
features much of the same attributes of our other festivals: Small class sizes
(maximum 50 participants), expert instruction (from Doug Van Doren, Bonnie
Perry and Robin Cook, among others)
and great meals and entertainment (a house concert with Mark Dunn and Clay
Rooster). What's more, we're also organizing Naturally Superior's own
Greenland-style games-a traditional paddling "triathlon" including a sprint
race, rolling competition and hunting with "live" targets.
